Then you'll like my friend John-Paul. He takes beautiful pictures. Of people, places, things. Name a noun, and he can take a beautiful picture of it. For example, here's a series of shots he took of gnocchi recently. Anyone who can make a lump of potato dough look beautiful is seriously talented. Wonder if I should have him take my picture. Ark ark ark. Get it? I made a joke about myself resembling a lump of potato dough. I'm also seriously talented.
It takes a gorgeous lady of comedy to know one, and Glennis McMurray knows plenty.
She's just launched a brand-new blog called just that--G.L.O.C: Gorgeous Ladies of Comedy which celebrates and profiles funny women. I was flattered when she thought of me, of course (someone who had a baby almost ten months ago and still lives in Spanx), and I was more than happy to oblige her with answers to her questions about comedy--and life--after motherhood! Does it exist? This is to be determined. Read the G.L.O.C. interview with me here. And when you're done, check out details for Glennis's solo show, "DISCO BALLS: INTO THE LIGHT--the quest to be fabulousballs" which debuts this month as part of the Charleston Comedy Festival. I haven't seen previews of the show and I'm so square I wouldn't know fabulousballs if they hit me in the face, but i think it's clear that the gorgeous Ms. McMurray has achieved her quest already!
May this new year bring positive change for everyone. Is something in your life annoying you? Maybe a big thing like your husband? Or a small thing like the paint job in your bathroom? Perhaps this is the year to fix it. Life is short indeed. We should try to improve the tangibles--or at least our outlook--so we can enjoy it more, right? Carpe diem! 100 years goes by in a blip! And four years? Forget about it. Remember when I said 2007 was going to be my year? I don't think it was. Or maybe it was? 2010 was pretty good. What year is it again? Where are we? What's going on? Does anyone love the Bee Gees like I do? I just saw their CD downstairs for sale at Starbucks. Price reduced to $9.99 from $12.99. I tell you what, if I had $9.99 left on the gift card my mother gave me for Christmas after the sandwich I bought with it, I might have "carpe diem-ed" in the form of a new Bee Gees CD. But I do have a ton of crap in the apartment cluttering my life, so perhaps it's best I didn't. Gosh. 2011 is starting out so complicated. Happy New Year, everyone.
